    Unanswered: db2 backup on unix


    We are running SAP on AIX 5.3 AND db2 udb 8.2.3. We have taken full offline backup from OS level. e.g. /usr, /sapmnt, /usr/sap/trans, /home, /db2/<SID>, /db2/log_dir etc. May i restore the backup on another server without installing DB2 software? and run the SAP? or do we need to re-install DB2 & SAP again and then restore the database backup?

    Please guide.

    I'm not sure if DB2 supports OS-level backups. If not, you can probably work with this, but if something fails you are on your own.
